Company Profile


The Company is a leading supplier of ingredients to the food, beverage, and flavours industries.

In 1965, Lionel Hitchen, with twenty years experience of the essential oils industry, established LIONEL HITCHEN (ESSENTIAL OILS) LIMITED to manufacture concentrated citrus oils.

Over the years the business has achieved a strong growth pattern both in volume of citrus oils and by diversification into the manufacture of oleoresins and flavours.


From the beginning the Company's excellent reputation has been based upon:

  • continuity and integrity; these are critical factors in this industry, and the company's clients are totally assured of both
  • production of quality products
  • close collaboration with clients to manufacture to their specifications in complete confidence
  • development of new products to meet the needs of an ever-changing market

Today, working in a close relationship with long established suppliers, the Company provides a comprehensive manufacturing and bespoke flavour creation service.
